Many Americans were frustrated when Hillary Clinton escaped from the Benghazi hearings unscathed. Then, equally upsetting, she wasn’t charged for “Emailgate.” Just when it was starting to look like nothing could touch her, House Republicans reveal the ace up their sleeve, and it looks like Hillary might finally get what she deserves. It will be her third strike in a year, and it should finally put her out of the game for good.
During the Benghazi hearings in October of 2015, Hillary was asked a series of questions regarding her email usage, which seemed to be a little off topic at the time but now make perfect sense. Her testimony in answering those questions is now being used to investigate her for perjury. Hillary was under oath when she gave those answers, which have now been proven to be false when compared to FBI Director James Comey’s sworn testimony after the Emailgate investigation.
According to Real Clear Politics, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) sent a letter to U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Channing Phillips in which they cited multiple examples where Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony before Congress contradicts with evidence found during the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) investigation into the Secretary’s private email server.
This letter is in response to one that Chaffetz and Goodlatte received from the U.S. Department of Justice, which basically blew them off after they requested that Hillary’s previous under oath testimony be examined more closely. The following is a brief excerpt from the full letter to Phillips.
The evidence collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony, which are described in greater detail below.
During a House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing on October 22, 2015, Secretary Clinton testified with respect to (1) whether she sent or received emails that were marked classified at the time; (2) whether her attorneys reviewed each of the emails on her personal email system; (3) whether there was one, or more servers that stored work-related emails during her time as Secretary of State; and (4) whether she provided all her work-related emails to the Department of State.
Although there may be other aspects of Secretary Clinton’s sworn testimony that are at odds with the FBI’s findings, her testimony in those four areas bears specific scrutiny in light of the facts and evidence FBI Director James Comey described in his public statement on July 5, 2016 and in testimony before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on July 7, 2016.
The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing next month during which the panel will probe members of the FBI on whether Hillary Clinton perjured herself in her sworn testimony. An unnamed Republican Committee aide said that FBI Director James Comey will likely testify at that hearing.
Citing transparency, the FBI has already given Republican congressional leaders a package of documents pertaining to their findings during the investigation of Hillary using private email servers. Reportedly, it’s highly unusual for the FBI to release information on a closed investigation.
Could it be that the FBI is actually on our side? Although, for whatever reason Comey didn’t recommend Hillary be prosecuted, everything else that he did say in his announcement and during his sworn testimony was extremely damaging to her credibility. Now, the Republicans have been graciously given the FBI’s documents on the investigation too.
Even though the liberal media and Hillary’s Democrat accomplices are doing everything they can to protect her, the American people want justice, and hopefully, our elected representatives won’t stop until they get it for us.
